Re: Flexing the leg

I'm in the group that usually says no problem, with the exception being when the cracks are on the inner layer of glass. No good way to fill those in my opinion. I don't often find the need to flex and I've already mentioned my preference for flexing but whether you flex from the inside or outside, ...

Re: Tap a bullseye

Before the spring hammer and slide hammer came along I just used a steel scribe like this one. https://www.deltakits.com/shop/windshield-repair-products/accessories-windshield-repair-products/product/273-long-steel-point-scribe/ And used a nylon stick like this one to gently tap with. https://www.de...

Re: Any suggestions- Drill?

For some reason I cannot see the photo other than in thumbnail size so I can't tell how long the legs are but unless you need to drill the ends of those legs I see no reason to drill that one.

Re: Rotary tool too big

What you need is a 1/16" collet, or if you haven't used that drill yet you might consider one of Delta Kits new drills that include the correct collet, and have the advantage of being smaller, lighter, and charge by USB so they can be plugged into any 12V phone charger. Both the collet and drill can...

Re: pit cloudy

It may be just the photo but it definitely looks whiter or cloudier than it should if you have already applied the pit polish. What it really looks like to me is that the pit filler did not adhere properly, such as when applied to a windshield that has been coated with Rain-X. When that happens the ...

Re: resin leaking under seal

Are you tightening the injector first, and then adjusting the pressure with the rear screw as per the instructions? Does screwing it in just a little more solve the problem without creating additional problems? It looks fine. The most important thing is that you can see the same amount of the seal o...

Re: Curing under pressure

Jtmac, You do bring up great point about cracks that are below the surface, and I agree that if the crack is only on the inside surface of the outer layer of glass flexing from the outside would be the way to open it up. I should have clarified that I was talking about surface cracks, which are the ...
